Dear Hazelwood Families,


On behalf of the staff at Hazelwood Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.

At Hazelwood, we empower our scholars to seek knowledge, think creatively and develop a global perspective, achieving nothing less than excellence!

Through our literacy work, Hazelwood Mustangs will learn to become effective collaborators, building on the ideas of others while learning to express their own ideas clearly and persuasively.  They will learn to evaluate various perspectives, methods of reasoning and the quality and accuracy of the information they read.  They will learn to write arguments to support claims in an analysis of text while also developing the craft of narrative, informative, and explanatory writing. They will learn to read like writers and find the hidden jewels that authors use to captivate their audience.

In mathematics, Hazelwood Mustangs will build a strong set of foundational skills while learning multiple pathways for problem solving.  Learning will be connected across grades allowing conceptual understanding, procedural skills/fluency, and application to be taught with equal intensity.  Scholars will be taught to make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.  They will learn to reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable mathematical arguments and critique the reasoning of others.  They will learn to model with mathematics, use appropriate tools, attend to precision, and look and make use of structure/patterns and repeated reasoning.

Most importantly, all Hazelwood scholars will graduate with the knowledge and skills needed for success in the 21st century. They will learn to STRIVE-building Self-control, True grit, Resilience, Integrity, Vision, and Empathy.  They will become lovers of learning and seekers of knowledge.

Looking forward to a great year!

In partnership,

Tracey Naylor Tymczyszyn
